To claim it as first with unboxing would pretty much be wrong but none the less here is the unboxing of the NEW Nikon D810.
One of the most awaited things on my list is finally here. I waited for it till I actually had a little hit a month and ago by this car and I absolutely felt – it is much needed to keep an eye on all these drivers too. So for all the wait – I eventually did order one of the latest GoPro Hero3 Black edition.
& then the first resultant objective from it too.
Power to create.
Initially, I was bit hesitant about The Nikkor AF 20mm f/2.8 D but after reading its reviews on the Photozone website and few others, I was not quite impressed. I have not had my hands on this lens but instead of looking for ultra wide 14mm I was satisfied with 20mm to begin with. I bought my lens via the ProCameraShop which again was the first time for me to buy from but they simply were super quick and next day delivery left me nothing but a great experience to deal with. I was buying online first time so I did have a little hesitant response and I called them right away to check what the deal was as I have not bought from them before. Their price was the best online compared to any of the other online retailers so I wanted to be sure. I did a quick online check on few forums and it turned out that they have been in business and operating in UK for quite sometime although warranties are offered through them.
After all the initial hassles, I had the boxed Nikkor AF 20mm f/2.8 D in my hands. It came through a tracking UPS delivery so no hassles at all kind of deal.
The Nikkor AF 20mm f/2.8 D is a full frame ultra wide-angle lens with 94° (70° with Nikon DX format) picture coverage with edge-to-edge sharpness. Additionally, the lens also boasts of Close-Range Correction (CRC) system provides high performance at both near and far focusing distance.

Although the review received by Photozone website and what I observed from the quality of shots on the FX , I do not find this lens to be as bad as rated. For this price you cannot go wrong for what you are getting out of it and for travel photography on FX you will possibly score all that you are after from this glass.
I do not see why people have rated this lens with such a low feedbacks – I mean you cannot get a sharpness of 1.4 at the price of 2.8 and this is not so hugely expensive lens.
Although all said about the lens, I would possibly share my dilemma between upgrading to D600 or D800 which has caused me to be quite upset with both the two recent FX upgrades.
Till then, thanks for looking and dropping by.
All for the eyes, I had to take this step to get myself a fresh view and vision for working prolonged hours on the pictures. After all the long wait and looking after what would really fit all my needs and my monies I had to settle with a Dell Ultrasmart 2410. From the suggestions of my near and dear Puneet & Adam I had to call it a deal to settle for this now.
24″ Monitor that comes pre-calibrated with company certificate, means no hassle for getting it calibrated. Waiting anxiously for it to arrive as I booked it to be delivered on Saturday I got it quite on time by 0900hrs pretty sharp delivery by the courier company. I ordered the monitor from www.pcbuyit.com and they have been helpful in providing the information needed for pre-sales questions.
Heres a quick glance on the unboxing of the much awaited bigger screen.
